Meriwether Lewis Institute for Citizen Leadership

The Meriwether Lewis Institute for Citizen Leadership at the University of Virginia is a multi-year fellowship that prepares students for a lifetime of leadership at the University and beyond. The Institute brings together a diverse group of UVA students from across the University for a 2.5-year immersive leadership experience. Each cohort of Lewis Fellows is comprised of 25 students selected in the fall of their second-year at the University. In their time as Lewis Fellows, students participate in a six-week summer leadership institute, enroll in two academic courses (one in the Architecture School and the other in the Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy), and contribute to the University through student organizations and individual projects.
